Alan Gottlieb was the guest in the first hour of Tom Gresham’s GunTalk on Sunday, Sept. 2nd. During the interview, he said that there will be a surprise guest speaker whom he couldn’t name for “security reasons”. The speaker will be announced on Saturday, Sept. 29th when he (or she) is scheduled to speak.
I have no special knowledge and no one has tipped me off to who he or she might be. However, I could think of at least two to three people that might fit that bill given that the conference is in Florida.
